Membership Covenant

Having trusted in Christ alone as my Lord and Savior, and being in agreement with the doctrine, purposes, distinctives, and essentials, I am now called to unite with the Fellowship Memphis church family.

I will seek to be conformed to the image of Christ and to the ministry of my church family by:

  • Attending weekly worship faithfully (Hebrews 10:23-25)
  • Committing to grow in a lifestyle that manifests itself in a passionate commitment to Christ, biblical alignment, personal holiness, generous living, racial reconciliation, and social responsibility (II Peter 3:17-18; Ephesians 4:14-16)
  • Engaging in spiritual relationships that bring mutual support and accountability to my life (Romans 14:19; Ephesians 5:21)
  • 
Taking the time to serve others with my spiritual gifts (Romans 12:4-21; Galatians 5:13-14)
  • Participating cheerfully and regularly in the financial support of the ministry and the obligations of the church (II Corinthians 9:6-7)

I will support the ministry of this local body to the community and the world by:

  • Supporting others fervently in Christian love (I Peter 4:8)
  • Upholding others in prayer and bearing one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2)
  • Developing relationships with and inviting the unchurched to attend (Colossians 4:5-6)

I will seek to maintain the unity of the church body by:

  • Acting in love toward other members (I peter 1:22)
  • Seeking open and honest communication when I have concerns (Ephesians 4:15)
  • Dealing biblically with conflict and refusing to gossip (Matthew 18:15-20)
  • Following the leadership of the church (Hebrews 13:17) and submitting to the principles of church restoration (Matthew 18:15-20)
